Treasure Island

Dr John Celes

Our Transient Life


Like warts that spring on body-parts
And moles those come and go,
Like pains and aches of muscles. joints,
In life, we undergo!

Like trials, tribulations how
Disturb our life’s routine;
Like woes and grief that come and go,
Those make us more divine.

Like changing seasons, life goes on,
And weary turns our frame;
Like rivalry and envy brings
Upon us fleeting shame.

Nevertheless, we must steadfast
Tread, trudge or walk or run,
On road to heaven, narrow though,
With God over-head like sun!

Poem of the Day

poet Helen Hunt Jackson

The month of carnival of all the year,
When Nature lets the wild earth go its way,
And spend whole seasons on a single day.
The spring-time holds her white and purple dear;
